    Ebay is the only place I'd look. Not sure what that is in £££ exactly but I think I paid about 50. I've bought two I believe and it was years ago but I'm pretty sure it was around that price...I was desperate, you see. :D

    As for the others, I've read before that some of the others are similar but not close enough, it just depends how much you care about getting that sound. Guitar for me back then was all I had so I spent everything on it, now there's alot more going on so I just play and that's it.

    What guitar are you putting it in and what is your amp situation? Those determine tone more than a pickup. Some good general pickups IMO though (since we don't know the rest of your gear) are Seymour Duncan's SH-5 and SH-6, as well as Dimarzio Crunch Lab.

    Its and Edwards E-AL-128. I mostly use it at home with a shitty pocket pod to save my neighbors nerves. I want to buy a POD X3 live or an HD to use at home and on stage when I have enough money.

    I used the guitar on various setups before but i never really fell in love with the tone.

    +1.

    Not to mention any effects racks/processors they could be using and what the engineer does at the desk.

    In that case I wouldn't recommend spending much on a pickup if you're using a pod. It won't really change your tone a whole lot. The main difference you'll be able to tell is whether you use an active pup vs a passive pup, as well as a high output or a low output. In that case I'd probably recommend just any medium-high to high output passive pickup that you can find a good deal on.

    Seymour Duncan: SH-14, SH-5, SH-6, SH-15, SH-11
    Dimarzio: Crunch Lab, D-Activator, X2N, D-Sonic, Evolution

    My personal favorites of those are the SH-5, SH-6, and Crunch Lab. Any of those would work, although the X2N and SH-15 would prob be a bit overkill for a pod. Again, I think with the current situation go with whatever you can find a cheap deal on. Pretty much everything's going to give you clearer/stronger tone than the EMG HZ :p and it'll all be tweakable with EQ-ing anyway.

    You can get ceramic magnets for pickups pretty cheap or maybe exchange one from another. Just replace the alnico magnet in the J-50B and you've got yourself a J-50BC (;
    The J-50's often go for much less because theyre less desired. The only ones there's been up on the bay lately have all been the 100 smth dollar ones while the j-50s have been priced more reasonable for an old p-up around i dont know 30-50$ which is what I bought my bcs for originally :p
    Glad I stocked up on these before they became somewhat rare and expensive :p JE-1000 + J-50BC is just magic

    Is it hard to get the ceramic magnets and to change them?

    I dont know where to get them, I asked Stan Hinesley who used to make pups where he got his and bought them from there, but apparently the company closed. Google is yo friend ;)

    Hello, I just signed up and thought I'd greet you all.

    Damn, will try and fix it later. Also thought Id update the tone a little anyways since the "choked" wah JE-1000 was a lil too much :p I love it but there could be a tad bit less

    You must be new to Dropbox. Put the file anywhere in your "Public" folder, and right-click said uploaded item, and copy public link, post here, win cookies.

    Long time since i've posted, sup guise. I changed to an 81 in my J2SP, sound pretty killer, slays the HZ3.

    Very! rough recording but thought the tone sounded okay :p

    http://kiwi6.com/file/3dc2xf595t

    J-50BC equipped warmoth super strat into JE-1000 into Korg on a clean channel ("valve") into an edirol. Then into Samplitude with LePoul Solo C vst and LePoul LeCab with GodsCab impulses, a little reverb from Freeverb and lastly a little EQ from a Paris EQ vst.

    Not perfect but sounds decent to me :p
